APPLE VALLEY, Calif. -- A middle-school teacher charged with lewd and lascivious acts with a former student is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.

Brenton James Unferth, 38, was charged Wednesday and the Apple Valley School District has placed the physical- education teacher on administrative leave.

He will be arraigned at 8 a.m. Tuesday in Victorville Superior Court.

Unferth, who taught at Sitting Bull Middle School, is accused of committing the lewd acts with a 15-year-old girl this year.

Text messages between Unferth and the girl, who was in his seventh- and eighth- grade classes, were discovered last week by her parents.
